Child Pedestrian Safety in San Antonio: A Review.

A total eclipse will soon be visible, and San Antonio is gearing up to host many visitors to this historic occasion.

As a result, kids will get off of school early and go outside to view the event. Drivers and parents need to be extra cautious to ensure that children are not accidentally injured in an auto accident in the next few days.

Let’s review driver and child safety tips to ensure everyone stays safe.

Driver Safety Tips:

You already know this stuff, but it’s always good to review:

  • Heads Up! — Stay distraction-free when kids are around. Don’t look at your phone, your car’s digital screen, or anything else but your surroundings while driving through neighborhoods and school zones.
  • Slow Down — Follow posted speed limits while in school zones and neighborhoods. You’ll need extra time to react to the sometimes erratic behaviors of child pedestrians.
  • Focus Up — Turn off music and consider rolling your window down slightly to listen for children or warnings to stop when driving through a neighborhood. This is especially important when backing out of a driveway.

These steps may seem excessive, but remember: no driver ever thinks they’re going to be in a pedestrian accident.

Child Crossing Tips:

Parents, this weekend is a good time to review these tips with your kids:

  • Look Twice — Make sure a driver can see you before assuming the right of way.
  • Stay Aware — Remove earbuds and put phones away when crossing the street so that you can hear cars coming.
  • Cross at Crosswalks — Children will sometimes step into the street suddenly, confusing drivers. Cross only at stop signs and intersections where it makes sense to cross.

Don’t rely on motorists to make the right decisions. Equip your children with the knowledge and skills to be smart pedestrians — it could save their life.
